Starting the practice in 1977 in Otara they realised that “people didn’t have that hope”, and with trying to recognise this they understood that they needed to get out and listen to the community. Ranjna shares the power that there is in genuine listening and processing can grow your understanding of people but also the situation that people are in.
Ranjna also shares with us the stories about the many communities that she is a part of and contributes towards. With Tāmaki Health New Zealand’s largest independent primary healthcare group and Gandhi Nivas (Peace Home) which provides men a space and tools to help reduce domestic violence against women. These organisations have really started and developed some formidable projects which positively impact many lives within a range of communities.
Ranjna shares the stories and fabulous improvement statistics about the two organisations and the great impact that these have had not only on the individual males and females but the community and society as a whole.
